To celebrate Independent Book Store Day, we, along with 19 other independent book stores (and counting!) here on the Cape are teaming up to bring you the Cape & Islands Independent Bookstore Trail! On April 27th, pick up a trail guide featuring participating stores. Visit 5 or more independent book stores--at any date or time throughout 2019-- and receive a special button.
Every independent book store is unique. it is an essential feature of who we are. Making people happy is our goal: through fostering a love of reading, and encouraging curiosity and the exploration of possibilities. Working at an Independent Book Store feels like more: Independent Book Stores are more than brick and mortar stores.
- community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers
- they are entire universes of ideas that contain the possibility of real serendipity.
- they are lively performance spaces and quiet places where aimless perusal is a day well spent. (quotes from The Independent Book Store Day website http://www.indiebookstoreday.com/)
We can't think of a better way to celebrate independent book stores and indulge your inner book-nerd than a day spent on The Cape & Islands Bookstore Trail!
